Tenerife is part of the Canary Islands, which lie just off the coast of North Africa. They are known for their year-round sun, meaning holidays here can always be about lying on the beach. Don't overlook some of Tenerife's other attractions either - it has the best nightlife in the Canary Islands and some magnificent scenery if you head inland. The resorts offer a mix of family-friendly fun, watersports and nightlife from the relaxing to the more raucous.
As Tenerife has been a popular holiday spot with us Brits for decades, there are plenty of choices when it comes to finding a hotel or apartment. For a lively holiday try Playa de Las Americas, or if you want a resort with plenty to do but a quieter vibe then Los Cristianos will be ideal. If you're not bothered about the beaches, but want a cheap holiday exploring Tenerife, then look for a hotel on the edge of a resort to save money and get a hire car to travel around and explore.
Much of inland Tenerife is protected natural parks, which gives you an idea of how pretty it is. A visit to Mount Teide with its volcano is a must if you're after seeing something other than the beach or the bar. Loro Parque and Siam Park are great for family orientated days out, and nature fans won't want to miss out on spotting whales and dolphins off the coast. Try out our Tenerife guide for more!
